I've been holding out for Matinee on Blu-ray forever. Kinda funny they credit John Landis's Into the Night before it, then call it John Goodman's Matinee not Joe Dante's. Still, Dante's seemingly pretty bored so I expect him to do some more with Matinee which would be great!
I'm intrigued by Eye of the Cat if it's indeed the 1969 one. Never heard of it. Come to think of it, it's interesting that Shadow of the Cat hasn't been optioned from Universal too... I wonder if another Hammer run from Universal is in order?
And now, a message about Hell Night via Facebook:
"Due to some unexpected early retailer pre-order links the word is out that we are the distributor on the blu-ray release of the 1981 horror film HELL NIGHT star...ring Linda Blair. It is true that we are in talks on the project but we have not made a formal announcement because we are still are in active discussions on the property. Please be assured that you will be the first to know if we are able to work out all the details. We love the film and want nothing more than to do it justice if we can. Till then, stay tuned..."
Of course I'll be getting silent night deadly night. But I was thinking we would of gotten a 6 film set through vestron line.
I thought there were only 5?
Of course Drag Me to Hell is getting a special edition. I just bought the original blu-ray. Alison Lohman is a terrific actress and exceptionally beautiful. She reminds me of Amy Adams. Her co-star isn't convincing and negativily impacts the film imo.
The Strangers is a wonderful film. If the extras are worth it, I'll double dip on that as well.
He's including the quasi-remake, Silent Night.
Maybe he's counting the remake?
Silent Night Deadly Night is appealing. I'll likely grab that one. I held off on the Anchor Bay release as I heard bad things so I'm sure this release should rectify that.
Silent Night Deadly Night and American Gothic are definite purchases for me. Darkman 2 and 3 should be a double feature, and the rest of the announcements are kind of bland. I was definitely hoping for an official announcement on Hell Night, but that's not even a sure thing. Remember when they were going to release Werewolf the TV series ? I can't get excited about stuff that is already available on blu anymore. Anyone else feel the same way ?
Looking forward to The Strangers, American Gothic, and Silent Night Deadly Night. I will also grab Hell Night whenever it comes out.
Damn what a lame list, Nothing rare this time. Silent Night is okay but can care less seen it released a lot over the years. American Gothic fun but I had no issue with the dvd so I will pass.
I too feel the same way. Last night's announcements were pretty underwhelming. I swear the SDCC Friday Night Scream Factory panel gets overhyped every year. I personally get more satisfaction & excitement out of Scream Factory's random single announcements throughout the year. Not all of them, mind you - but there have been many. Blu-ray re-releases are a tiring trend from Scream Factory. More new to Blu-ray titles would perk up the masses. I would also love to see more retro made for television horror. So much that hasn't been approached.
All that said, I am in for Silent Night Deadly Night & American Gothic. Maybe another title as well, just nothing that excites me at all.
This is the reason why I had my expectations in check this year. Although "Misery" will be a day one purchase for me, I'm way more excited for the release of "Poughkeepsie Tapes" than anything they announced at SDCC.
Windows Blu-ray.com review:
I was a little disappointed with the announcements - mostly because someone, somewhere claimed The Seduction was coming and I thought that would be announced. I guess it still could come but I'd be more excited about that than the Darkman sequels or Attack of the Puppet People. And I'm not sure what the logic is not releasing Matinee under the Scream Factory banner but I'm sure there are reasons.
But it's good to see obscure titles like American Gothic and Eye of the Cat (never even heard of that one!) getting released. And here's hoping this will be the definitive release of Silent Night, Deadly Night. Would be awesome if they could get Robert Brian Wilson for commentary! Definitely in for Misery and Drag Me To Hell and probably The Strangers as well. I haven't upgraded any of those from DVD. I'll skip the Darkmans and Cyborg and probably Puppet People. That's more titles I'm interested in than not so my initial disappointment was short-lived.
Exclusive Interview With SCREAM FACTORY Straight From SDCC 2017 On Their 10 Recently Announced Titles!
SNDN will have a fresh scan from the original camera negative (Fuck off Anchor Bay! ) + new extras
...and Hell Night is still in progress.
Vinegar Syndrome would have been a better company to handle The Seduction imho.
Not a bad idea. Schmoeller did commentary on the DVD but he was overpowered by producers Irwin Yablans and Bruce Cohn Curtis, which made it unlistenable after awhile. I'd love a new commentary with just him and a moderator - or with Andrew Stevens if he'd agree. Schmoeller has been vocal about not wanting Fairchild as the lead so I doubt she'd participate but I'd love to hear her comments as well as Colleen Camp's.
